A Storytellers Version of Pharaohs and Queens of Ancient Egypt (The Jim Weiss Audio Collection) By Jim Weiss Cover Image


Acclaimed storyteller Jim Weiss takes listeners from palace plots to treasure chambers, from the inner rooms of a mysterious temple to the middle of a thundering chariot charge.

From roaring battles to whispered court intrigue, from desert wastelands to luxurious palaces, Jim Weiss leads you through a civilization fifty centuries old, spinning vivid stories of remarkable rulers (Hatshepsut, Akhenaten, Ramesses II and more), the Nile River that made it all possible, and the thrilling discovery of King Tutankhamun's treasure-laden tomb.

About the Author

In 1989, Jim Weiss set out on a mission: to record the greatest stories he knew from world literature and history, and inspire families -- especially young listeners -- with a passionate love of the original classics. In the three decades since then, Jim's narration voice and seemingly numberless character voices have formed foundational entertainment and education for millions of listeners around the world.Winning hundreds of awards, Jim’s recordings range on the literary side from fairy tales through stories from Shakespeare, Dickens and Conan Doyle, while his history recordings bring to vivid life major historical events and personalities from the ancient world through the twentieth century.The inspiration for all this began early, with parents and grandparents who told stories and read aloud to him, skills which Jim joyously acquired, and which led him to a degree in Communications and Speech from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Later, his wife, Randy, earned her own national awards as a teacher and counselor, and their shared passion for learning led to forming their company in 1989, long before the explosion of spoken word recordings made this a "sensible" decision. The recordings began winning listeners and national awards from the first. A few years ago, the Weiss's licensed their recordings and business operations to Well-Trained Mind Press, which has successfully introduced Jim's work into still more markets, while Jim continues to write, record, teach and perform.
